I can't believe it!

As I sit here half working and half internet browsing, I can't believe what I have just seen. Rhae has been rolling like crazy for the last few weeks and has gotten really good, rolling all over the den. Well, apparently, she is not going to be outdone by her cousin Halle, because Rhae too is now trying to crawl. Well, not trying, and not really crawling. She has the soldier crawl DOWN PAT! She's been moving her legs around a little when on her tummy, but not really going much of anywhere. Well, she was on her stomach and saw something several arm lengths ahead of her. She apparently figured out she could propel herself, because she went from side to side, each time pushing just a little with the opposite leg until she got what she wanted! I do think she will crawl before her birthday! She is just such a determined little soul and it is absolutely amazing to see how far she has come and the accomplishments she is continually reaching!

Oh--and by the way, if anybody reads this before tomorrow, or in the next day or so, there will be an article about Rhae in the weekend Demopolis Times. Not sure how it will look, but Amanda called me about a month ago to ask about them doing a story, and after busy schedules, we finally nailed down Wednesday and David Snow came over to do the interview. I, of all people, almost became speechless, and felt like I couldn't think of anything about OI. I hope it is informative about the disease and not just us, because that is the only reason I agreed to the article--to educate the public. So, check it out if you get a chance. I hope to be putting some new pics on when i get a chance.
